I recently turned 44 years old. The periods of my life when I was the happiest, was when I was teaching something to somone, or when I was serving others for no reason other than to help them. I have done exercises to identify when you were happiest in your life. What always remains consistent for me is that I am on this planet to help others.
This is why I LOVE teaching and coaching. When I was younger, I would give all of myself to my students. I thought I could fill my holes by helping others.
As I have embarked upon my conscious journey of awakening, I am seeing that my authentic self is a healer. I am kind, compassionate, and always see the best in people – this is what makes me a great teacher. Life in the real world can be very rough for people like me!
In my 44th year of life, I see with absolute clarity that I am called to teach and to serve others. Now that I have the tools to take care of myself, I know to put my oxygen mask on first, before I try to teach and serve others. I realize now that this makes me a stronger teacher.
Now that I am in touch with my true self. I am called to help others rise. I am called to share what I have learned, and I am called to be me.
I know that all answers are within, and searching for answers on the outside is never going to give me the validation or wholeness that I need.
Today, I launch davidkrichards.com and this is no small feat for me. Showing up and being my true self is scary. I do not like to be the center of attention, and I have a website with my name on it! But I have the clarity within that this is my next step. I know it will be challenging and fun, and there will be many obstacles to overcome. When you are following your highest calling none of that matters!
I write this blog post today to mark the day that I stopped hiding my true self, and decided to share it with the world. I am not sure where this will all go, but I know that I am a gifted teacher, and it has to continue in a different form. My greatest hope is that my courage helps others be their most authentic selves.
If me shining my light and sharing my story helps a few people, then I can sleep well at night knowing that I am following my purpose, being true to myself, and just going for it, no matter how scary it is! Life takes off on the other side of fear. I am ready to play with heart and show up.
I look forward to meeting new people, building a community, hearing your stories, and serving people to become their greatest selves. At this point, there is no other choice!
